    India rejects China’s maritime invite

    India boycotted a multi-nation maritime meet hosted by China last month — the latest fallout of Beijing denying visa to an Indian general in July this year. In an assertive move, Indian Coast Guard chief vice-admiral Anil Chopra turned down China's invitation to attend the annual Heads of Asian Coast Guard Agencies Meeting held in Shanghai in the third week of October.

    South Block sources said it made no sense sending Chopra for the summit in view of China's provocative stance on Kashmir and denial of visa to the general. Military contact between both nations has been stuck in a logjam since July when Beijing refused to host northern army commander Lt. Gen BS Jaswal, as his jurisdiction spanned Jammu and Kashmir.

    Jaswal was to head a military delegation to China for an annual defence dialogue, hosted alternatively by the two countries to review progress in defence exchanges.

    The dialogue forms part of an MoU signed by the two countries in May 2006 to enhance military engagement through a broad spectrum of initiatives.

    India is doing it right, time for China to correct itself. Today's era is not about bullying it will not work, with India developing fast it will make it very difficult. Doing things just to please Pakistan is stupidity. I am positive China will correct itself in future.

    well, ever since the miltary contact has been called off after china denied visa to he general....there has been no response or corrective measures or even any concerns shown from Chinese side...signalling, its is not being regrded as a significant, by china..so in this scenario..ging ahead with any such exercise will send wrong signals. good that india has refused for now.

    The more China is stubborn, the more they are pushing India to side (even though it seems far-fetched) with the US and its allies when it comes to China. China is putting its relations with India in jeopardy just to please Pakistan.

    true indeed ! well, pleasing an ally like Pakistan is alright,but in return its cmpelling India to have a negative impression abot china and turning it against China, with every new move...and later will complain about India creating a nexus with US against China.
